What makes this B&B the best in Flagstaff are the owners Richard and Laurel. Unlike other B&B's , they live in a separate house on the property so you basically have full run of the house that you are in; although you are staying in one room. It is not just me saying this it is others too; read the reviews. The reviews are not just cursory reviews as could be seen on other B&B's reviews. We come back here because the personal touch that they give is excellent as well as when they help you fin dings to do or places to eat. They know the area and the shops and restaurants in the area know them. Other reviews had helped us in the past to make decisions on where to stay.
We have stayed in 3 different rooms 3 different times and all are exceptional; they all have their unique charm and historic ambiance. The one we stayed in this time is quite the quiet gem and roomy too. This room aka The Cellar, has beautiful mahogany accents and paneling and a painted tin ceiling. With cozy chairs to snuggle up to the fireplace and a good book or glass of wine, it makes it a nice little hide away spot. Although not a bed room, the Parlor is inviting with its wrap around couch and classic period decorum. I have spent time up here too in this common area to socialize with others as well as to just sit around. Everything about the England House says come home, stay awhile. Richard and Laurel take time to get to know you names , even before you get there. With a stocked refrigerator, with ice cream, sodas, beer, wine, cookies, popcorn, fresh fruit, it is like being at home without having to do all the shopping.
Our latest stay was for four nights, so five unique breakfast's. The coffee or tea is always hot and the food is as fresh and unique as you can get it; it is not over the top though. Richard and Laurel keep modest notes on what they have served you during your stay as well as what you liked or did not like as they accommodate now and in the future for whatever may arise. They too make note of what you liked or not while in Flagstaff as this can be handy to know when referring other guests.
Yes, welcome home. It is nice to be here again. I have stayed at other B&B's and no others in this town or elsewhere come close to this home. Make sure you check in before 6PM so you can get the full effect of this historic house as well as not to disturb other guests. It is sad we had to go back to our other house but we will be back.
